that the white house is going to proceed with a nomination of general allen to be the nato supreme allied commander now that he's been cleared by the pentagon investigation going back to the petraeus case. thanks to all of you, david sanger and kelly o'donnell, of course, and chris cillizza, see you later. thanks very much. >>> clinton today put a lot of blame on congress for withholding aid. >> we have to get our act together between the administration and congress. if this is a priority and if we are serious about trying it help this government stand up security and deal with what is a very dangerous environment, from east to west, then we have to work together. i also hope we're looking forward, because right now, libya is still dangerous, it is still in a very unstable status, and whatever we can do for them, we at least ought to agree we need to do and get out there and start delivering. >> one of the members of the senate foreign relations committee, who is asking questions, is the new hampshire senator jean chacin, former governor, democratic member of the committee, who was in the
and hostilities are concerned. we will take it from nato and the u.n. to, clearly a violation of the constitution. host: any reaction? guest: that is over the top because nobody in the a restoration has ever said they would ignore congress and only listen to the u.n. and nato. i have been critical of this administration, too. i have been critical of certain policies in places like afghanistan or iraq, but let's keep our differences on the policy level. let's acknowledge the fact that secretary clinton and her colleagues are honest policymakers trying to do the best job they can in a typical set of circumstances. let's not question their motives. let's focus on genuine policy differences. i have those policy differences with this administration. it is crazy to me to engage in all of this conspiracy theory and name-calling. >> what do you think will be the biggest -- host: what do you think will be the biggest concern, or two, with this administration? guest: my concern is that you will see more retreat and retrenchment from this administration. my concern is that the administration pursued a fairl
was going to become engaged through nato in ways that met our interest, i think, at the time, and got the job done. i thought it was smart. i thought the way he approached that was, in fact, very effective. and the results, obviously, were exactly what we wanted to achieve. we could tell if we did this, senator mccain you were deeply involved in that, we recommended no fly. we pushed for certain things, and those things were put into place. and it was affected without american boots being put on the ground at a time where we had just come out of iraq and we have american soldiers, largest number, in afghanistan. and so i think the american people approved of the way in which that was handled. now, the aftermath of all of these places -- i asked every member of the committee, we need to spend some time on this, all of us. there is a monumental transformation taking place. this is the biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. as all of us know, many of the countries lines drawn, were drawn in relatively arbitrary fashion. people were put i
was kind of the easy thing. the tough thing was building nato afterwards. wasn't winning world war ii the tough thing? i think it's a revealing little insight into his mind that deep down all this war stuff, that was kind of in the past, and sometimes you had to do it, but that's not really what a real statesman of the 21st century does. international engagement and avoid war at all costs. jon: some have suggested that the policies he pushed or emphasized like, you know, expanding gay marriage, for instance, don't cost anything, don't take money out of the federal budget. >> well, that might be true in some case cans, but again there, i mean, he makes that sound as if there's a universal consensus in the united states that gay rights is of the same standing as the civil rights movement from selma to stonewall. wasn't president obama himself not in favor of gay marriage until six months ago? do you have to believe in same-sex marriage if you believe in the principles of the declaration of independence? i don't think so. i don't think most americans think that's just obviously the right
in very delicate conversations with other countries u.n. and nato forces ran themselves through surrogates and other countries so that we don't have to pack a a 1.4 million of our citizens in engagements again and again so we don't have to do that, there's nothing from the right wing saying you know what? i have problems with the domestic policies of this president or whatever but i'm not going to open up the door where i'm going to call him a muslim. i'm not going to do that and make it both a pejorative and or accusatory. >> don't you think this is online with the inherent lack of disrespect they seem to have for this president? >> lack of respect. >> lack of respect. disrespect or lack of respect. >> hal: i think there's two reasons why they have a lack of respect. one is they can't have respect for him and then get re-elected later in their mind. >> it is worse now than it's ever been with any other democratic president. >> hal: i agree. there is something knee-jerk and guttural about it. if you look at their -- their vilification of bill clinton, we forget because the economy -- we di
as they're taking on the terrorists in mali right now. >> that's right. if it's too much to refuel a nato ally while they deal with the shared terrorist threat, what will we do? jon: danielle pletka from the american enterprise institute, it's good to have you on. thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> well, secretary of state hillary clinton p wrapping up unfinished business as she approaches the end of her tenure. we'll take a look at how the benghazi terror attack could affect her political future including a possible presidential run in 2016. >> new next hour secretary of a state hillary clinton largely getting rave reviews in the media for her performance in yesterday's hearing on the benghazi terror attacks. simple stamp of approval or something more? our news watch panel will be weighing in on that one. >>> a las vegas woman is suing match.com for nearly $10 million after a man she met on that dating site nearly beat her to death. does she have a case? our legal panel will be weighing in. >>> and incredible video of a shootout in texas that happened two years ago. bank robbers firi
